Hello again! As this first month of basketball and school is coming to an end, everyone is finally getting into the groove of things, including myself!  What a blast it's been getting to know everyone better on the team and reminiscing with my dorm mates and friends about old memories, already making new ones.  One of my goals this year is to invest more of my time into the community here at VU and diving into other social groups such as meeting people from the theater program, those in student government, etc.  Enjoying the end-of-summer weather trying to catch some sun and waves at the beach kicks the year into full swing, and gives me a nudge to get back in the library to start my homework as the tests begin to pile mountain high.
